Hands-on with the Nokia MD-12 wireless speaker

Nokia MD-12

While not as crazy as new phones, Nokia did announce a new wireless Bluetooth speaker. It’s cute, it’s small, it’s the Nokia MD-12. We weren’t expecting much from the speaker, but walked away pretty impressive by what it can do. Check our hands-on with the MD-12 below.

The MD-12 connects to your phone wirelessly (or via a 3.5mm jack). You can connect your phone manually by pressing the Bluetooth connect button or you can just tap and pair with the NFC-Bluetooth combo.

While small, the MD-12 does pack a punch. It has a built-in vibrating actuator located on the base. It’ll create heavy bass by being placed on heavy surfaces. Sound quality was pretty good from what we could tell, but we were in a crowded environment.

The MD-12 offers 15 hours of music playback. You can get it in yellow, green, orange or white. Look for it in the coming weeks for €39.

Hands-on with the Nokia MD-12 wireless speaker

This thing will be on sale for $30 two months after it drops. You know it, I know it, Nokia knows it. $59 is laughable given what's already out there for a lot less.

Wish you would have had a chance to record it's audio a little bit. This is the thing I would like to try before I buy, especially for $60. Looks cool though.

Got it. Nice build quality but sound quality just good enough so I'm returning it. Also, the orange version is almost flourescent in color - not what I thought when I ordered based on picture on Nokia's site. You get what you pay for with speakers and this ain't it.
